How was the legislative to be set up in the Virginia plan?

Virginia was the largest state by population at the time the Constitution was being written, they believed, along with the other Chesapeake Bay Colonies (because they were the largest) that the state's number of representatives should be directly proportional to the state's population. So if the law passed required every 10,000 people to have one representative and Virginia had 1,000.000 people it would have 100 representatives while a state with only 100,000 people would only have 10. They believed this was fair because any decision made by the Federal Government would effect more people in Virginia thus they should have more say The Virginia Plan was built into the current House of Representatives which is based on state population, today California, Texas, New York are the top three states in population.
